I am 28 weeks with DC3. We have a boys name picked but have absolutely no clue for a girls name. We want something that is ideally not in the top 100 or pretty low down if it is. We have a shortlist but I'm not loving anything if I'm honest! Here is what we like and agree on so far-

Eloise
Elodie
Corinne
Carla
Genevieve
Meabh
Aoife

Any opinions? Any other ideas?

Corinne - not keen
Carla - it's ok. Much prefer Clara and Cara

Love elodie & Eloise, we had them on our list but think they'd get shortened to Elle or Ellie which I don't like.

I know sisters called Maeve & Aoife! Much prefer this spelling of maeve.

Macushla? Gallic origins too. A beautiful song sung by tenor John McCormac (Rufus Wainwright version terrible).

Macushla isn't usually used as a name, it's an English version of a Gaelic endearment, combining the words for 'my' and 'pulse'. Poetically, it means 'my dearest' or 'my darling'.

The original song is lovely.

Oh I'm pretty sure it is used quite commonly in Ireland. And it is our eldest daughter's name! Although we live in England. We generally call her 'Mac' though.

Very, very romantic to be named after a love song!

Like Eloise. How about Corinna instead of Corinne?

How about Kerenza, Demelza or Tamara?
